Robert Frost - A Prayer in Spring

A Prayer in Spring
Robert Frost
Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

William Blake - To Spring

To Spring
William Blake
O thou with dewy locks, who lookest down
Through the clear windows of the morning, turn
Thine angel eyes upon our western isle,
Which in full choir hails thy approach, O Spring!

The hills tell one another, and the listening
Valleys hear; all our longing eyes are turn’d
Up to thy bright pavilions: issue forth
And let thy holy feet visit our clime!

William Shakespeare - Sonnet 98

Sonnet 98
William Shakespeare
From you have I been absent in the spring
When proud-pied April, dress’d in all his trim,
Hath put a spirit of youth in every thing,
That heavy Saturn laugh’d and leap’d with him.
Yet nor the lays of birds, nor the sweet smell
Of different flowers in odour and in hue,
Could make me any summer’s story tell,
Or from their proud lap pluck them where they grew:

Dear Board Members:

I’m writing in strong support of Elizabeth Warsteiner’s application to purchase an apartment in your building.

I have known Elizabeth since 2002 when we became colleagues at TPS Inc. It was quickly apparent that Elizabeth is a smart, thoughtful and very successful person who had the respect of both colleagues and management of the company.

Dear Elaine,

Professional reference - Telecommunications Supervisor

Jean Reno first impressed me by outstanding professionalism in execution of his duties as a member of the IT team. I was therefore not surprised when he was promoted to the post of Telecommunications Supervisor, proving his skills and ability to excel even while transitioning from one role to another. He is focused, committed and determined to achieve beyond set targets, against very high personal standards. This makes him a most valuable asset to any Organization of which he is a member. I recommend him without hesitation!
